Comment on The OTW is Recruiting for Tag Wranglers, Open Doors Staff & Open Doors Technical Volunteers

  1. Would these volunteering positions possibly turn into paying jobs? Has that happened before when you looked for volunteers?

    1. Getting paid defeats the purpose of being a volunteer; also this is a non-profit. No one gets paid. It's in the volunteering FAQ as well.

    2. Hi,

      No, none of our volunteer positions turn into paid positions. No one in the Organization for Transformative Works receive monetary compensation for their work. If you’re curious about how we spend our money, please refer to our 2021 budget update here.

      1. Thanks for the response. And I'm curious about what kind of MYSQL work you do. I have some experience with that and I may be able to help.

        1. In relation to databases, Open Doors Tech Volunteers would need to know how to run a MySQL database locally and use it to manipulate data.

          1. I'd really like to help with that, but I can't seem to find the application page. Do you think I could share my experiences/reasons to help with you here?

            2. Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Please don’t post your information here.

              We’ve received the maximum number of applications for the Open Doors Technical Volunteer role and are no longer accepting applications for it. Future opportunities will be posted on our website and advertised on a News Post here.
